so far. so good.

Despite someone forgetting to set their alarm last night and waking up 10 minutes before our ride to the airport was to arrive… WE HAVE ARRIVED in Oregon!

The Minneapolis airport was easy enough thanks to my ring sling. We packed in such a way that we had very little to carry. You know, besides the most precious cargo ever.

It was a little early in the morning for OBaby, note the tired expression. But he dozed a little while we boarded and took off, so he was bright eyed and bushy tailed in time to play with Daddy on the flight.

He did such a wonderful, wonderful job on the plane you guys. I had nothing to be afraid of. He flirted with the stewardesses and one even dubbed him her boyfriend. He was full of smiles for other passengers and giggles for our seat buddy. We read Eric Carle to him and he learned about how gravity acts upon plastic keys when one throws them. Twice. At our seat buddy.


The lap of a traveling Mommy. Burp rag, check. Keys and links, check. Sakura Bloom Ring Sling, check. Camera, check. Water bottle, check.

It was a 3.5 hour flight and OBaby was all smiles, all the time. Well, except the nap part, but that went absolutely swimmingly.

In the end, we flew across 2/3rds of the United States with a 4 month old and we so much to be thankful for.

Happy Thanksgiving, All!

    Aw, what a sweet baby! We took our daughter on a plane to Boston in September and she was so good…much better than I expected. I was so worried about her being loud or crying a lot, but as long as we fed her the fresh baked cookies served on flight, let her play with the ice from our drinks, and the flight attendant would play peek-a-boo with her, she was good to go ;)
